    This was such an interesting experience where you are seated with strangers in a packed table that you will definitely hear each other slurp. Loved the beef tendon curry with flat noodles.

    Curry beef noodles are absolutely amazing. Staff are assholes, but that's the true Hong Kong way. Be careful of discrepancies between the Chinese and English menus.
  • Brian H S.
    The menus i uploaded with are 4, 14. As ppl here mention one dish wont be enough (especially for men) so i ordered two. Both of them were perfect. Visit after 2pm then u wont wait long.

    Came close to closing so most noodles were sold out. Had curry Beef brisket with Tendon egg noodles. It was good. Curry was tasty & spicy. Meat & tendon was tender. Tho I wouldn't wait an hr for it.

    amazing curry beef noodles but the owner is so rude & grumpy, would yell at you if you move slow, it's almost funny

    Everyone talks about the curry but honestly the simple beef noodle is much better. The menu is confusing AF and when they bring the food they won't call it by the number. Ask someone to translate
  • Chinaphong K.
    The curry noodle is the best. There's always a queue. On average a person spends 15 minutes in this restaurant, so it's quick. Expect to wait about 30 minutes to be seated. *Ps. No queue for take out.

    No no no... The place is not clean and the meat was just full of fat... Had to search for actual meat in the bowl... 😝

    All time favourite for beef brisket! Have it with the thin egg noodles, instead of the white flat rice noodles.

    Line moves fairly fast. The curry beef noodle is good but on the spicier side.

    I did like my bowl of beef tendon curry and he loved his beef brisket beef broth... Slippery floor and unapologetic HK attitude

    Don't be scared by the line, it goes fast, and get the beef tendon with curry.

    Well it's safe to say I did not regret standing in the queue for 30 minutes for my delicious bowl of beef slice noodles. Was absolutely mouth watering.

    Really good beef noodle soup, highly recommend their curry e-noodle!! Keep in mind.. might be a 30 mins wait, below average service and sharing table with others.

    Nice beef noodles. Different. Clearer texture. Long queues and very cramped eating. Be careful too, floor is oily and slippery.

    Is it worth the wait? Yup! If super hungry order two bowls or split an extra one with a friend

    I passed by this place everyday because it's so close to my place. There's forever a queue of tourists. I walked in today around 10 when there's no line. I ordered curry beef noodle soup. So good!

    Overrated and therefore, overpriced for what it is. Beef is too chewy and flavourless. Soup is at best, on par with any old koay teow th'ng you'll find in Penang.

    probably the best beef noodle stew i have had. broth in the regular noodle soup is amazing and fragrant, and the curry is smooth and comforting. strong recommend.

    Excellent beef brisket & efau noodles. I've been told it's best of the kind in HK. Indeed is very tasty. Don't look for anything fancy: you cue to enter, you sit, you eat, you leave.

    Always wanted to try their beef brisket. Local favorite hence expect to Q. Small and cramp place but with good ventilation. Would love to try their curry next round. Note the staffs may not be polite

    If two bowls is too much, get the beef brisket noodles and a side of the curry (only 10 HKD). Dip some of the noodles and beef into the curry and enjoy.

    Excellent beef brisket. Curry beef noodles is my favourite. Queues out of the door are there for good reason.

    Taking photo from the end of the queue. Avoid lunch time if you can as the noodles are not fully cooked during rush hours. Beef brisket is good though
